not yet rated|write a review
After reviewing theories about how women are likely to fare as a result of economic development, the editors and their contributors focus on the socioeconomic status of women and changes in it as a result of processes of economic development in individual countries in five continents. Economic development is supposed to remove impediments to the improvement in women's status. In some developing countries researchers have found that instead of lessening the forces of restrictions, economic development may, in fact, have strengthened them. The editors call for a greater involvement of women as active participants in the process of dismantling social, legal, and institutional barriers to women's development.

?This book is a significant contribution to the literature on women and development, even though it retells--in some respects updating--what is by now for the most part a familiar story. Its editors and other contributors are fully aware of the crucial relation between the status of women and successful and sustainable economic development . . .?-Studies in Comparative International Development
